Recruit Global Staffing, one of the world’s largest providers of HR services, has changed its name to RGF Staffing. The company already provides employment for hundreds of thousands of people each day. With the rebranding, the company underlines its unique position to move the global labor market forward as an international family of leading brands.

RGF in RGF Staffing stands for Recruit Global Family. We are a family of HR service providers across four continents. Our main brands include Advantage Resourcing, Bright Plus, Chandler Macleod, Peoplebank, Recruit Staffing, Secretary Plus, Solvus, Staffmark, Staff Service, Start People, The CSI Companies, Unique and USG Professionals. The group provides employment and career opportunities for over 300,000 people each day.

RGF Staffing’s local brands will continue to operate under their established names, as part of the successful ‘local for local’ strategy. The brands are strongly embedded in the local labor markets, which means they are close to their customers and candidates. By emphasizing that the local brand is ‘Part of RGF Staffing’, we highlight that our local professionals are part of a global network of industry experts, backed up by a financially strong mother organization, with an annual revenue of 12 billion dollars.

CEO Rob Zandbergen: “Our key commitment is to work ‘faster, simpler’ and to be ever ‘closer’ to our customers and candidates. To deliver on that promise, we combine the insights of our committed professionals with the huge potential of digital technology and artificial intelligence. RGF Staffing represents the global family of dedicated people that seize those opportunities and make a difference.”

Recruit Global Staffing’s ceo Rob Zandbergen is included in the Management Scope's Top 100 of supervisory directors in the Netherlands. He enters this year’s list at number 95. Rob is a member of the supervisory boards of energy company Eneco and the Dutch Flower Group.

Various positions

Rob: "I’ve always held advisory and supervisory positions. In the past, I was a member of the supervisory boards of Kliq (employment agency), EMIS (market research agency) and SNT (call centre company). I want to do something in return for society and other companies, which is why I also hold various advisory and management positions at Tilburg University, Defence and the foundation ‘Future of Technology’.”

Main focus is Recruit Global Staffing

About his debut in the top 100 Rob says: "It’s always nice to be on lists, but my main focus is on Recruit Global Staffing. I think my role as supervisory director also helps Recruit Global Staffing, because it increases my network.”

Rob Zandbergen, CEO Recruit Global Staffing, recently gave an interview on the Dutch radio show ‘BNR Zakendoen’. In the twenty-minute interview with host Thomas van Zijl and entrepreneur Marja Ruigrok he addressed different developments in the labour market, as well as our company’s strategy.

Listen to the whole conversation (in Dutch only). The interview with Rob Zandbergen starts at 11.30 minutes.

‘Economies are performing well’

In the discussion Zandbergen shines his light on the current state of the economy. "In all of our markets there is a shortage of personnel and a strong demand for temporary workers. I think that is a good sign. It indicates that many economies are performing well.”

Recruit Global Staffing

Zandbergen also explained why USG People changed its name after the acquisition by Recruit Holdings, and that in spite of the name change, the short-term impact of the takeover is limited. “Recruit Holdings is not so much a Japanese company, as a global entity. And since it’s mainly a financial holding company, its business operations retain a lot of freedom to make their own decisions.” Recruit Holdings consists of three strategic units: HR Technology, Media & Solutions, and Staffing (Recruit Global Staffing). In Europe USG People still exists in four countries with underlying brands.

Artificial Intelligence

"After the takeover we’re ready for the future, that's the most important aspect," says Zandbergen. A future in which artificial intelligence will play an increasingly important role. "AI ensures that we can be more productive. Especially in key parts of the recruitment process. But the human touch will always remain. Finding the exact right match remains a people business.”

One step ahead

Zandbergen also gives an insight into Recruit Global Staffing, such as strategy. "We only acquire companies if they add value to our organisation. We are not going to buy for the sake of it. We wait until the right moment.” Regarding new, disruptive competitors on the staffing market Zandbergen said: "An interesting development. I think we will always be one step ahead because of our decades-long experience with people, and because of our expertise in bringing candidates and organisations together.”
